Kaleidoscope: Hell Freezes Ower


Welcome to Kaleidoscope your source for arts and entertainments created in Wester Hailes by local people!

Hell Freezes Ower

Hell froze and Heaven fell
In lumps upon ma heid
Hell a’ kin handle but no’ the ither.
Well, the Fire Brigade dug me oot
o’ a pile of twisted wrought iron – the Pearly Gates no less
nearby, God’s Hoose hud fell tae earth, noo jist a pile of smashed marble pillars.
Overby kin ye see yon smoking mound of turf? –
thon’s the Elysian Golf Course
haunt o’ mony great and good cheapskates.
I think I’ll salvage some divots to patch my bald front lawn.

G.H. – March 2016
